Wine Making

The winery was first opened in 2010 and now all Nutbourne wines are produced on site. Total wine production is between 40,000 and 60,000 bottles per year. Winemaking is headed up by our consultant Wine Maker, Owen Elias, several times winner of the UK Wine Maker of the Year. Owen possesses great knowledge and expertise; a very natural approach; and hands-on involvement in every stage of the production. He achieves outstanding results at both Nutbourne and the other vineyards where he is involved.
